What Readers are Saying About the Series: “…lies, misdeeds, treachery, and romance. What an impressive story! Ms. Oakley has a unique way of telling her stories, bringing unknown heroes/ heroines into the spotlight, as they navigate a world of espionage, and intrigue, all while trying to survive and find their HEA. Magnificent and mesmerizing!” ~ Amazon reader "[Hetty's] unswerving devotion isn't reserved for Aubrey, but extends to her family as well, even when they don't deserve it. I liked her, though. She's sweet but not unbelievably so. The red-alert Kill Bill moment when she unravels her father's other life is classic. :D And I loved her attitude about sex -- i.e., so certain of a loveless marriage (or perhaps no marriage at all) that she seizes the chance to brazen it out & enjoy herself." ~ Dangerous Gentlemen reviewer. “Full of secrets, murders, intrigues and you feel you know the characters and want to strangle some of them, especially Araminta!!! I have since read all in the series and can’t wait for Book 5... This is a series I will read again and again.” ~ Amazon reader Buy this exciting romance filled with sensuous heat today!
